Merry May Folk - text

On a fresh May morning
I took my love to church
To see if parson Pruneface
Was properly a-perched
The sermon scarcely started
Someone began to snore
When like a sunlit sea wave
A green and crimson wave
A band of merry May folk came a-whooping
Through the door

Whoa singing:
Come up, come in with streamers
Come in with boughs of May
Come green and white and trip the lawn
Till night becomes the day
Jump up and dance the Tom-fool
Jump up and duck and leap
Jump up and wake the people that
The parson puts to sleep

They brandished nut-brown tabors
Their garlands fell in showers
Came lads and lasses after them
With feet like dancing flowers
Their queen had torn her green gown
And bared a shoulder white
White as the May that crowned her
And all the minstrels round her
Tilted back their crimson hats
And sang for sheer delight

Whoa singing:
Come up, come in with streamers
Come in with boughs of May
Come green and white and trip the lawn
Till night becomes the day
The Earth is dressed in flowers
Bedecked as if to wed
Go on and kiss the lady-o
Before the moment's fled

The dusky velvet hassocks
Were cloaked in fragrant dew
The font grew white with hawthorn
It frothed in every pew
The parson's beard was frosted
With the queen's hawthorny kiss
When like a Morris saber
Tomm Fool raised his tabor
Bounded to the pulpit
And commenced to preaching this:

Whoa singing:
Come up, come in with streamers
Come in with boughs of May
Come green and white and trip the lawn
Till night becomes the day
We sing of life arisen
From the Lord who shed and died
Your God's alive in greenwood
With the Lady by his side

Whoa singing:
Come up, come in with streamers
Come in with boughs of May
Come green and white and trip the lawn
Till night becomes the day
Jump up and dance the Tom-fool
Jump up and duck and leap
Jump up and wake the people that
The parson puts to sleep

At Easter dawned our Morris
Ere Pentecost our May
The words we sing are different
But the tune's not far away
So stand with us, join hand in hand
And raised a sacred call
We sing of life arisen
We sing of glory risen
We sing that love is risen again
And love is lord of all!

Whoa singing:
Come up, come in with streamers
Come in with boughs of May
Come green and white and trip the lawn
Till night becomes the day
So dance with joy remembered
And sing of love's reward
Raise up a cup of May wine
To the Lady and the Lord

Come up, come in with streamers
Come in with boughs of May
Come green and white and trip the lawn
Till night becomes the day
So dance with joy remembered
And sing of love's reward
Raise up a cup of May wine
To the Lady and the Lord
